SOLO District is shaping up to be Burnaby’s next business hub.
The new development, located at Lougheed and Willingdon in North Burnaby, boasts a prime location, an array of amenities, a pedestrian-friendly design and close proximity to transit.
“The large, safe boulevards connect shops and local residents, which creates a village atmosphere at SOLO District,” said Meghan Kennedy, the development’s leasing manager.
“Recent studies have shown that high pedestrian volumes have a positive impact on businesses economically and appeal to a younger demographic,” she added.
These characteristics have already attracted a variety of businesses to the development.
“We have established a great tenant mix, including Ricky’s All-Day Grill, SOLO Dental, Stripped Wax Bar, Uncle Fatih’s Pizza and The Girls Nail & Lash Boutique,” Kennedy said. “The shopping centre component of SOLO District will comprise approximately 101,681 square feet and will be anchored by Whole Foods, Shoppers Drug Mart and a BC Liquor Store.”
These tenants decided to lease at SOLO because of its location and modern, trendy, environmentally friendly atmosphere, according to Kennedy.
“SOLO District is an urban community with retail that services the residents and office tenants, creating an upbeat, modern environment and a desirable place to live and work,” she said.
There are many other perks to being a business in SOLO District. A fitness facility and outdoor entertainment area that includes showers, change rooms and day lockers, will be available to office employees. The development will also feature an “end of trip” facility complete with bike storage, showers and lockers for tenants who cycle to work.
In addition to retail space, SOLO District has 275,000 square feet of office space left for leasing.
“CMW Insurance has leased a floor of office space, which we are very excited about,” Kennedy said. “But we still have eleven 25,000 square foot floors available.”
All phase one retail spaces have now been leased, but two retail units are still available in phase two. Phase three and four leasing will launch once phase one and two are complete.
